Ratings & Reviews

Dina is truly talented at her job. She has a wealth of knowledge in the real estate markets, a fantastic work ethic and great personality. She was extremely proactive in searching for the perfect home for us. In a market space where many of the desirable homes are sold very quickly, her skill set was definitely the deciding factor between us getting our home and the other people who placed bids afterwards. I don't think I've ever worked with someone more dedicated, professional and honest in their career field.

Helped me rent a home.

Wow. I was looking for a last minute rental for my elderly parents and contacted Dana on a whim after seeing she was the listing agent on a place. She went into rapid response -- looking at many options and getting us a look at a place that was unresponsive through my direct contacts. She met us to take a look at it and spent time afterwards going through other options and helping us make the best choise. All this within a few hours of the first random call/email. Although we ended up going with a rental that I had identified separately, I wished I had found Dana weeks beforehand as I am certain she would have made the process painless. She was clearly a caring person who loves her work and it seemed to me she will pull out all the stops for every client -- big and small. This was further reflected in the article I found about the office she works for (google "Meritage Realty Takes Heartfelt Approach to Selling Homes"). Anyway, I thoiught others would appreciate knowing about my brief encounter.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Arlington Heights, IL.

Dina was absolutely PERFECT! Being a first time homeowner, and never going through this process before, she really exceeded our expectations. For one, she was extremely responsive and would answer our calls or texts any time of the day or night. She was willing to show us different houses at whatever time we suggested and was always flexible. She never pushed us to buy anything-in fact, after seeing about 10 houses, she picked up on what we were looking for and would actually convince us not to put a bid on certain houses because she knew we were just getting impatient and it was not what we really wanted. She also made sure we paid a fair price and only bid what we were comfortable with. She was so nice to work with and made the process so fun! Even when we came across a few barriers with our inspection, she kept a positive attitude and made sure everything was worked through before we officially closed. I will, and already have, recomended her to others. Dina is awesome!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Palatine, IL.

I would highly recommend Dina for any of your real estate needs. She represented my husband and myself when we needed to rent a house after a move across the state, and she also represented us when we bought our new home. She is highly experienced, responsive, friendly, caring, and is available 24/7. She was really in our corner throughout the whole process.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Fox River Valley Gardens, North Barrington, IL 60010

I had the opportunity to speak with Dina yesterday (January 27, 2015). Although I made it clear that I could not hire her (I had already hired a realtor), Dina took the time to answer my questions. I highly recommend her - her comments demonstrated that she cares about her clients, her work, and that she is highly ethical. I look forward to a time when I can work with her.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Mount Prospect, IL.

Dina is extremely "hands on" with her clients. She truly listens to their needs and requests and provides the best possible solutions. The listings she recommends will truly meet your needs. Dina goes above and beyond the normal realm of any realtor we have ever dealt with - truly a wonderful person to work with.

Dina knows and shares the real deal on location, buildings and types of units in Arlington Heights. She's very helpful to establish the best investment for your money. Shuffles a lot of activities, Dina will squeeze things in to try to accommodate everyone. Adam is very good also.

Bought a home in 2014 in Arlington Heights, IL 60004.

Dina is awesome!!! She was always on top of her work and showing us homes. We had been looking for a home for a couple of months and once Dina started to work with us we got our very first home super fast! I would highly recommend her to anyone! We are very happy with our home now and it's all thanks to Dina.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Arlington Hts, IL.

Dina helped us both buy and sell in 2013. We looked at houses for what seemed like forever - and she never pushed us to move quicker. She was honest and would tell us when she didn't think a house would work for us - and would also help us understand how we could make ones work when we asked. She was an exceptional realtor - always willing to go the extra mile, even if it meant working late on a saturday night - like during our negotiation process. She knows the area, is well respected within the realtor circle and was a true pleasure to work with! She also sold our condo in the city for us - and helped us get the best fair price.
